NOMINATE: Best Cylindrical Skyscraper

Nominate your 3 favourite Cylindrical Skyscrapers.

These must be skyscrapers which have an overall cylinder shape, i.e. with the same-sized circular floorplate from the base of the tower to the top.

Please use this thread for nominating only. If you wish to discuss or post large numbers of pictures, please use the "DISCUSS:" thread.


-----------------


General rules:
The Hall of Fame forum is where we decide about our all-time favourites from the world of skyscrapers, skylines, buildings and cities. Every week users can nominate and vote in a specific category.

The five nominations that get the most mentions will be up for the final vote the week after. The one receiving the most votes will go into the Hall of Fame.

Nominating
If you name more then three, only the first three will count. If you name the same structure or city three times, that will be counted as one. Do not use this thread for discussions.

Promoting your favorite
Discuss this week's topic in the 'DISCUSS:' thread.

The BOFA in Seattle--if you count that as being cylindrical--it looks completely different from each side, many of which are--cylindrical.

Doesn't count I'm afraid.

It has to be an obvious cylinder shape. There's no way you'd call the BOFA tower a pure cylinder.

^I wouldn't say there's NO way--You could call it a pure cylinder if you were drunk--or a liar!

Okay then, put me down for the Westin Peachtree in Atlanta

My "patriot" chioce: BIZ Basel - it's not a cooling tower but already quite old


The strangest: Ponte City (it's HOLLOW in its core!) in Jo'burg


The oldest: Rundetaarn (round tower) in Cobenhagen inside is a spiral road where they could even go up by horse and cart!

Are there ANY nice cylindrical buildings at all? Til now there is nothing special appearing here

BTW: I forgot Hiton, SP - also not the "wow" building (especially if Copan is on the other side of the road, which is really a great building - you can see parts of it on the left):
